…“It is now well established that, in 2016, the U.S. government and others undertook certain intelligence-gathering and investigative steps directed at persons associated with the Trump Campaign. … There remain open questions relating to the origins of this counter-intelligence investigation and the U.S. and foreign intelligence activities that took place prior to and during that investigation.”

    Today the most beautiful letter in the alphabet “s” as in “. . . into certain activities involving the campaigns in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and certain . . .”

    adding that “s” to campaign moves the ball into investigating, reviewing, both campaigns, opens up the world of possibilities.

      Yes, one wonders if there was a “Russia collusion” storyline concocted in advance of the primaries, that would have been used against the GOP nominee, no matter who he or she was.

      As in,

      “One of our candidate’s vulnerabilities is her and Bill’s deals with Russia: Uranium One, Skolkova, Bill negotiating Rosatom’s acquisition of Kazakhstan uranium mining rights, and a whole ton of Russian money flowing to the Clinton Foundation. Let’s knock this off the public debate table by accusing the GOP candidate of colluding with Russia. and having the press run this accusation nonstop.”

        What people believe affects their actions. Hillary is a follower of Saul Alinksy, author of Rules for Radicals. One of the rules is accuse your opponent of what you are guilty of. Alinksy was also , publicly, a quasi Satanist. ( yeah Devil / Lucifer / Satan ). Having put a shout out ( semi dedication ) to Lucifer in the foreword of Rules for Radicals. If your willing to hear it, now you know where the source of all the dedication to lies and deception comes from in politics and the world. As someone said “when someone shows you who they are, believe them.” So most of the corrupted ( loving a lie ) politicians are not going to change, short of a miracle. on a not connected at all note. What will the legacy of some politicians be, they struggled for power at all costs ?. they were greatly decieved ? they were a wrecker? they devoted their lives to improving the world and thought they could do it all, without the help of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit?.

    Heads up:
    See “(Department)” above, it’d be redundant in it’s placement, if it wasn’t meant to imply something of significance, aka (😉😉).

    My guess it means “internal Dept.”… as in this is being conducted by a particular Dept of insiders, within the DOJ.
    ie., Don’t worry, the clean-up crew has got this contained.

    Calling it a “Review”, & not an “investigation” is telling in itself.
    Remember also, there’s a HUGE difference for anything labeled a “MATTER.” As in it goes nowhere, & is meant to be covered-up.

    So see where “… and certain related matters” is followed by “(Review)”. It’s unnecessary. Unless, it’s offering some added assurance that pertaining to.
    ie., These issues are considered as “matters,” & will ONLY be “Reviewed”.

    Don’t be surprised when this “Review” results in a REPORT– only. One that’ll attempt to minimize & justify their crimes, while hiding the TRUTH.

    Thanks, Boyd 🤨

      I think Barr will do a proper investigation and prosecutions. Why? Because he has seen a lot of D.C. Beltway and Deep State crap, but this entered Gestapo / NKVD territory:

      Deliberately false accusations were manufactured. They were not just used in campaign ads (SCOTUS has ruled that libel and slander in political races are longstanding traditions, and therefore acceptable). This went away over the line into law-enforcement actions agains the falsely accused, and attempts to financially ruin (law fare) anyone who joined the Trump campaign. It included Nazi/Soviet dark-of-night home raids, with SWAT ops that suggested people like Roger Stone were heavily armed Colombian or Mexican Cartel leaders.

      AG Barr knows that some people were given Lavrentiy Beria and Heinrich Müller (no idea here whether there is any familial relation) do “what thou will” marching orders. Bill Barr knows he does not want his daughters and grandchildren inheriting this kind of country. His progenitors fled those kinds of countries.

      I’ve seen enough throughout this investigation to know your observations are reasonable stated.

      However, the use of the word ‘REVIEW’ could be an indication or meaning, that a parallel INVESTIGATION, run along the lines of a counter Lawfare strike force investigation built on the communications and inquiries (the Letters to fbi/doj) of Goodlette, Nunes, Meadows and Gowdy, IS NOW being reviewed for referral.

      Where as the word (DEPARTMENT), you cite as a redundancy, may be a reference not to just the Department of Justice but of the OFFICE of the DoJ.

      In addition, the use of the word ‘matters’ to sweep up the full scope may in fact be a weaponized trivialization decidedly choose to play the Lawfare Game. Point being the REVIEW it is not a game.

      On a side note, and an entirely different playing field.

      I am going to say this for the umpteenth time. If Tommy steals a car, his cousin Joey learns about it weeks after the fact, and in investigations Joey tells investigators he knows nothing about the theft, that is obstruction of justice. He didn’t commit the crime, or know about it in advance or during its perpetration, but he has knowledge that is material to the investigation.

      Now, something completely different happened. The mayor was driving drunk, ran off the road and totaled his car. He walked home and the next morning called his friend the chief of police, and reported that his car had been stolen. Joey, a not-upstanding citizen is interrogated and treats the police with disrespect. Can he be lawfully prosecuted and convicted for obstruction of justice? No, because the investigation was based on a fictitious crime: Joey could not know anything about a nonexistent car theft, and he didn’t know the mayor made a false allegation to protect himself from a DUI charge. He was under no obligation to give the police the time of day.

      Somebody made an ascorbic comment, I am botching it, but it went something like, “We arrested a fella for stealing a horse, which we know he didn’t do. Now he’s illegally committing assault trying to stop his own hanging.”

      Perhaps. We do know that Natalia Veselnitskaya admitted she worked with/for the Russian State Prosecutor, a Kremlin agency.

      Nice background story, to create a pretext to go after Don Jr. EXCEPT, Ms. V. conspired with DNC-smear-campaign operative Fusion GPS, getting a pre-Trump Tower-visit briefing from, and giving a post-visit debriefing to, Glenn Simpson. And Loretta Lynch issued a special visa to enable Ms. V to enter the US and visit Don Jr. Lynch had to do this because Ms. V was on a banned-from-US-entry list. This was an attempted frame-up.

      Now suppose DJT actually got a heads-up on this from military intel, Israeli intel, and/or his own private intel team. Suppose he said to Don Jr., “Okay, let’s see what they’re up to.”

      Similarly to his “complaint” about Mueller, “Now I’m f**ked.”
      What if he WANTED the Mueller [Weissman] investigation, to lay a trap to expose the coup plotters and their malevolent and fraudulent machinations?

        The order of operations is “Ready! Aim! Fire!” As opposed to the Dems’, “We’re going to drive by his house, stick our guns out the windows and start shooting.” This is taking time to amass all the evidence. A lot of evidence has been destroyed, so reconstruction is difficult. Barr has good people on it. Remember, under then Boston U.S. District Assistant U.S. Attorney’s prosecution, Bob Mueller, 4 innocent men were sent to prison for a murder that their gang’s rival Whitey Bulger committed. The FBI agent in charge, John Connolly was taking payoffs from Bulger, under a scheme to help Bulger eliminate rivals, and Connolly helped arrange for a liar to falsely testify that he witnessed the four innocents commit the murder. (I should clarify: the innocents were organized criminals, to be sure, but our government cannot frame criminals for crimes that the government knows they did not commit. Not lawfully.) At parole hearings, Bob Mueller successfully argued against parole, when the innocents first became eligible to be released. If he were not in on the scam, he could have just stayed out of the hearings.

        It was John Durham who several years later uncovered the scam, resulting in the reversal of the convictions and freeing of 2 innocents, 2 having died in prison. Then private lawyers sued the federal government for false imprisonment and RICO conspiracy, leading to an award of $105 MILLION to the 2 innocents and the families of the other 2 innocents. We the People paid this, Not Connolly. Not Mueller.

        I don’t know if Durham was involved in the successful prosecution of FBI Special Agent Connolly. But he is not a “Let’s brush the the crimes of FBI agents under the rug, to protect the FBI’s reputation,” type of person.

        Here is my take: Lisa Page doesn’t want to miss her kids’ birthday parties and graduations. She has likely turned State’s witness under a leniency agreement, and fingered Strzok and McCabe. Strzok, a CIA liaison, will trade leniency for testimony against Brennan and McCabe. Brennan may still have enough “juice” to flee the U.S. on a private plane to a non-extradition communist or muslim country–he holds both cards. He could even take a cigarette boat to get to Cuba from Key West in 45 minutes, and from there, with a Cuban passport, either forged or issued, travel anywhere. McCabe is cooked.

        Chris Steele has been insulated from interrogation–he avoided it for months. He isn’t a U.S. citizen, he can volunteer to be interviewed, but not compelled. Nevertheless, within 4 days of Trump and entourage’s arrival to London to meet with the Queen, PM and other high officials, Steele has agreed to meet with Durham’s investigators. Sheer good luck for Trump, eh?

        Steele will finger Brennan, Nellie Ohr, and Glenn Simpson among others. Ohr performed “open records” research for CIA and Fusion and passed findings to Steele, like public media stories of Flynn and C. Page attending conferences in Moscow. These were innocuous, but provided grounds for false concomitants, like Page got a huge brokerage deal to sell Gazprom assets, and Flynn slept with a conference participant from Russia. Steele has already discredited his own “dossier’s” incriminating accusations. He did this in a London court as a libel-suit defendant.

        His defense of, “I did honest research, but I couldn’t prove my findings,” did not work under UK libel law: if you print false allegations of misconduct, you are liable. There is no “public figures” NYT v. Sullivan et seq. protection. But what he did was to tell his handlers, “Look I tried my best. I could not prove my ‘dossier’s’ allegations were true, I was stuck. But I did not blow the whistle on you by admitting you fed me this bullish*t. I told the court I did my own research.”

        He’ll talk, when Durham’s people tell him,
        “Your government has given you up, Chris. That’s why we’re sitting here. You’ve committed several U.S. felonies, for which you will be extradited, tried and imprisoned for at least 5 to 10 years. If you fight, your defense lawyers’ fees will be 10x what Coie-Perkins paid you. Or you can tell us what really happened, and agree to come to the U.S. to testify, and we’ll pay for your travel and lodging expenses, put you in the Witness-Protection Program, and let you off scot-free.”

        Thanks to JW, Nellie Ohr is already subject to two indictments: illegally accessing her husband’s DOJ email account, for which hubby is co-guilty for sharing his password. Spousal privilege against testifying against one’s spouse does not include the privilege of a private citizen wife accessing her husband’s classified U.S. government-owned email account. Plus she spoliated evidence by destroying government emails. She’s up for a 5 to 10 year term behind bars. Unless she talks. For example spilling the beans on Glenn Simpson and John Brennan. Perhaps others.

        Bruce Ohr’s, “I was the middleman for transferring secret communications, but I did not know what they were, my wife gave me thumb drives, but she kept their contents secret from me,” is going to fly as far as the Hindenburg did after May 6, 1937. He’ll talk, and receive some kind of conviction, with disbarment and no pension, but likely receive no prison time.

        Glenn Simpson has already lied in a Congressional hearing. He is going to spend some time behind bars. He’s high enough on the ladder to get a nice retirement payment to clam up, and take one for the team.

        Susan “I didn’t unmask nobody!” Rice and Samantha “What my name is on 270 unmaskings? It was Russian identity thieves! They stole my bank account info and ruined my credit rating!” Powers are going to learn how to bake cookies at the Martha Stewart Gourmet Kitchen in Alderson, West Virginia. They will learn to don an oven mitt before touching a 350-degree baking sheet, after the first time not doing this. Cuz they are smart ladies.

        On the Page FISA warrant, we’ll have to see who in the chain of command “VERIFIED” Steele’s “dossier” info from level one, and if lower level “verifiers” were instructed by higher-ups to “verify”, as one person seems to have recently testified.

But after his saga of being invited overseas, being set up to talk with a fraudulent “Russia-connected” guy, Joseph Mifsud, actually a CIA/FBI/MI6 trainer, with the meeting arranged via CIA-paid Stephan Halper, and a $10k cash payout that resulted in the FBI futilely searching for the money, I now see George as a credible wet-behind-the-ears frame-up patsy.

        And the guy that signed the letter, Stephen Boyd was writing DOJ letters for Rosenstein so Barr didn’t “pick him”

        First, you criticize SD, then ramble on about stuff you don’t know. Are you on the right site?

    I’ll believe this is serious if I see an actual indictment of any of the “star” characters in this little morality play. Or, hell, even a grand jury impaneled to hear testimony. And then if and only if it happens within the next three or four months. Otherwise, this is just running out the clock.

      It could be a year. Or even more. When I decided I wanted to go to medical school, it took me FOUR YEARS to make it happen. And then another SEVEN YEARS to make it to practice medicine. People who cannot envision a future many years hence, cannot create a future they want to inhabit.

      Carter Page already said he testified before a Grand jury.

    That is one beautiful letter from Stephen Boyd. Jabba the Hutt Nadler will need a change of his 5XL undies after reading this DOJ letter. Sounds to me like DOJ is getting help from foreign intelligence agencies who don’t want to look too bad as this scandal is fully revealed..

    Signing off for the night – I look forward to sweet dreams of Brennan, Hillary, Comey et al peeling potatoes in the prison commissary. Maybe they could form a stand-up routine to entertain the inmates. LOTS of material to work with.

  18. ~Too Funny !!—>A.G. William Barr conveys to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold (the Penguin) Nadler (D-NY) that if he keeps pushing-the-issue that He (A.G. Barr) will release everything and Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Mueller, Comey, Reed, Schumer, Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff & Cummings names will [Frequently, Prominently and NEGATIVELY] come to the Public’s Attention.~

    A number of things I hope AG Barr and USA Durham are exploring:
    1. What were the “OCONUS Lures” Peter Strzok texted Lisa Page about in December 2015?
    2. Who were the “four contractors” who abused the 702 database in Winter and Spring 2016?
    3. Was it four individuals, or four companies? Who hired them? Who tasked them? Who did they send their findings to?
    4. What was the “wire carrying current” connected to? Who authorized it? When was it installed?
    5. Who tasked Stefan Halper and Joseph Mifsud to connect with Papadopoulos? What was their mission?
    6. Who tasked Azra Turk? What was her mission?
    7. Who wrote the actual allegations in the Steele Dossier? Russians? Or Americans?
    8. Who told Perkins Coie and Fusion GPS to hire Orbis Ltd’s Chris Steele? When? Why?
    9. When Admiral Rogers briefed the President Elect on the illegal surveillance, who led the charge on retaliation?
    10. Who developed the strategy to use the Logan Act, FARA and Lying to the FBI against LTG Flynn? Why?

    • FYI: the electronic audit records of the classified databases (like the audit records of every other government database and most civilian ones …) say EXACTLY who requested the information, exactly when, and exactly what. Furthermore, it was the duty of Adm. Rogers as Director of Intelligence to promptly inform potentially-affected parties of the breach. He spoke both to Judge Collyer and to Candidate Trump, among others, because he was legally (and, ethically) required to do so. The corrective actions that he immediately implemented were also legally required. His final move of placing the Department as a military command was a step to prevent further politically-motivated interference that otherwise might compromise the actions of the command. Adm. Rogers’ actions were entirely above reproach – but Trump’s enemies attacked him anyway.

      Incidentally, as we speak of things like “35,000 emails” and “the information that was supposedly on Hillary’s server, in any case that was leaked,” Government information capture-and-retention capabilities, and audit records, can no doubt provide FACTS for these matters, too. I’m sure that we can pinpoint exactly when those records were originally removed from the classified systems that contained them, and by whom. (This may well have already been done, and we would not be privileged to know.)

    Why does the AG investigation into the Russia hoax not also include all of the others that were involved that enabled the attempted coup to be planned and executed?…. without these partners there is no way that the coup would have had legs and it would have faltered at the start and died a rapid death. Specifically, the mainstream media, with its 24/7 pileing on to spew the lies and hatred for the President and to lie to the American public and poison its mind, the Obama Administration that started and guided the travesty, the Democrats in Congress and the DNC that fed the lies daily to the media, the Mueller team that drove the Democrat agenda despite knowing very early that this was a hoax and the Clinton team that pushed and underwrote the bogus dossier that was used to support much of the coup.
    Why should they skate as they were core and vital components in attempting to pull of this treasonous coup?

    Hmm, does this mean that any sort of contemp or impeachment vote could be construed as an attempted obstruction of justice? I’d love to see that communist Nadler indicted.
